Delicious Pizza!

Although it is a rather limited menu, pizza, salad, sandwiches and a couple of pasta entrees, the pizza choices were amazing! We had the meat lovers and it was delicious. A side Caesar Salad was ordered and it was not your typical Caesar, there was grated parm on it which was pretty lackluster... read more

We like the pizza, but have stopped eating there because of the bad service and unfriendly staff. The food is way better than the service you will receive.

This place was reccommended to us. It was out of the way from where we were staying. Waitress was not super friendly, and when we stated issues with our pizza was defensive. Upon bringing my 1st piece of pizza to my lips, the 1st thing I was presented with was a burnt arouma/flavor entering my mouth as I breathed in... More

We go to the Tablerock area several times a year. My husband insists on one of our dinners being take out from Pizza by the Chef. The pizza is always good and the salads fresh. The cheese garlic bread is okay. Generally a 40 minute wait once you order.

I have eaten here many, many times. This is absolutely some of the best pizza that I have ever eaten. They have several unique pizzas and wonderful fresh salads. They make their own dressings.

It's a small little restaurant in a strip mall in Hollister, MO. We found it one year by accident, and boy, are we glad we did!!! LOVED: The pizzas are reasonably priced. There were six in our party and we each wanted something different, so we each ordered our own 8" pizza (ranging from 6.50-7.50 in price). The waitress was... More

While vacationing in Branson we had to make a trip to Hollister and decided to grab lunch. The lady at the counter was friendly but I told my husband that it wouldn't be any good because it didn't have a smell and all pizza places smell good. I was wrong the pizza was great. We had a all meat pizza... More

I cannot say anything bad about this one, except why don't they deliver. If you want great pizza, this is your place!

Boys had small pizzas each, I had the Greek salad. Husband thought it was the best pizza he's ever eaten. All was very delicious and very fresh.

Best pizza I've had in awhile! Their cheese and sauce is fantastic. We ordered the Hawaiian pizza, and they made all of those flavors work...it was just delicious. Will definitely return if we ever make our way back to Branson.
